Television – Venus de Milo Lyrics 13 years ago
okay, i don't know about anyone else but i absolutely love the parts where everyone kinda yells DIDJA FEEL LOW?

it always puts a smirk on my face.

The Replacements – I Will Dare Lyrics 14 years ago
"Fingernails and a cigarette's a lousy dinner"

Ooh, someone is VERY nervous and tense. :)

XTC – 1000 Umbrellas Lyrics 14 years ago
the magnetic fields do an awesome cover of this!

The Rolling Stones – Soul Survivor Lyrics 14 years ago
is the bell bottom blues line a reference to the song of the same name by Derek & The Dominos?

Pelle Carlberg – Clever Girls Like Clever Boys Much More Than Clever Boys Like Clever Girls Lyrics 14 years ago
It's so true.

Smart girls will ALWAYS get the shaft. They don't want guys that aren't on their level, while the ones that are on their level don't want them.

Smart guys can be such schmucks.

(can you tell that I'm a little bitter?)

Neko Case – Duchess Lyrics 14 years ago
This is a Scott Walker song, kids.

Ramones – I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend Lyrics 14 years ago
I would absolutely MELT if a guy sang this to me.


The Beatles – Within You Without You Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is just about being aware of the power that you hold in your own hands, and using it positively.

This isn't just my favorite beatles song, this may just very well be my favorite song of all time.

Also, Sonic Youth does a most impressive cover of it :)

The Magnetic Fields – Love in the Shadows Lyrics 14 years ago
"Don't laugh. I think you're beautiful."

That line gave me CHILLS the first time I heard it. Stephen sounds like he really means it.

Brian Eno – Backwater Lyrics 14 years ago
I challenge anyone to find a song that makes you want to hit the "repeat" button more than this one does.

The Damnwells – I will keep the bad things from you Lyrics 14 years ago
I think the "what if all this was true?" line is referring to the fact that he has questioned love before, and he's wondering if it's all real. Before he does it all, he wants to make sure it's worth it.

Or maybe the person he's talking about doesn't believe it's true, and he's trying to say "hey, i love it really that hard to believe?"

The Damnwells – She's the NYC Skyline Lyrics 14 years ago
How in the hell has NO ONE commented on this song?

This song is so painfully beautiful. It's so sincere, yet so unbelievably simple.

I could only hope that someone would think so highly of me...

Neko Case – We've Never Met Lyrics 14 years ago
"Was a time I thought I knew you
When I looked you in the eye
Now the same eyes look right through me
You're too cool to see me cry"

God damnit. She hit it RIGHT on the head.

Neko Case – Runnin' Out Of Fools Lyrics 14 years ago
"every girl knows the guy this song was written about..."

I know him all too well.

Belle & Sebastian – Lazy Line Painter Jane Lyrics 14 years ago
Thrush: Slang for a yeast infection of the mouth. Usually found among people that have AIDS, or give fellatio.

James – Laid Lyrics 14 years ago
Actually, I've heard that this song is about a relationship that can function in the bedroom, but is total chaos outside of it.

Ride – Vapour Trail Lyrics 15 years ago
I used to have a friend who lived by me, and our apartment complexes were seperated by a golf course.

There were many nights when I listened to this song on my walkman, in the cold breeze of the night. Just me, the stars, and this AMAZING song.

I just can't tell you what this song does to me. I feel bliss...the bliss that comes from falling in love. I also feel a little longing, because I wish I had someone to share this song with.

Oh, and the end when everything drops out and it's just the viola (I've been told it's a viola...I'm not too literate on string instruments)...oh my god. The song just enters a new dimension of beauty and feeling.

God, this song is amazing. I get choked up every time I listen to it.

Talking Heads – Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On) Lyrics 15 years ago
This is THE song that made me a Talking Heads fan. I love Byrne's delivery of the lines "Well, I'm a tumbler...I'm a government man."

Camera Obscura – Let's Get Out of This Country Lyrics 15 years ago
Before this, all I had really heard was "books Written for Girls" and "Eighties Fan"...I liked them, but I'd have to say that this is THE song that made me a fan.

Bratmobile – Cherry Bomb Lyrics 15 years ago
Actually, the original version of this song was done by The Runaways. Joan Jett (and Lita Ford) played guitar and sang in The Runaways before the band broke-up and she formed the Black Hearts.

You are now informed.

Louis XIV – Louis XIV Lyrics 15 years ago
"and all the kids on the street,
they think I’m me me me me me"

I think that's wrong, and the correct version is:

and all the kids on the street,
they think I’m neat, neat, neat, neat.

Yo La Tengo – Don't Have to Be So Sad Lyrics 15 years ago
This song is absolutely beautiful, and probably my favorite YLT song, next to "Sugarcube".

Neko Case – The Train from Kansas City Lyrics 15 years ago

How on Earth has no one commented on it? The song is self-explanitory, but it's still a great song.

We Are Scientists – Callbacks Lyrics 15 years ago
maybe this guy is just freaking out for no reason.

i know this, because i do this all the time.

You get damn frustrated, not necessarily because of something your lover did, but because you may have some insecurities of some sort about being in the relationship.

It just seems like someone is very frustrated by their insecurities, and all I can say to that is welcome to the club.

Matt Pond PA – Claire Lyrics 15 years ago
i think the Pretty Girls Make Graves reference is to the song by The Smiths of the same title.

Matt Pond PA – This Is Montreal Lyrics 15 years ago
this song is so simple and so short, yet sooooo fucking amazing.

Bloc Party – Banquet Lyrics 15 years ago
has anyone heard the remix of this song that The Streets did? It's so great.

Bloc Party – She's Hearing Voices Lyrics 15 years ago
I think this is about being in love with, or being really close to, a drug addict.

The drugs drive them mad, and you try to get close to them. You try to see if there's still a real person behind all of the drugs, you know? But you might as well be talking to a wall.

It's like...yes, they're totally strung out, but you don't want to give up on them, even though they act like you aren't even there.

The All-American Rejects – 11:11 P.M. (CST) Lyrics 15 years ago
anyone bother to think that the title, and the lyrics, might be a play on the phrase "the 11th hour"? referring to the last moments before a deadline, or meant to imply that a decisive or "final" moment is near?

Belle & Sebastian – Ease Your Feet in the Sea Lyrics 15 years ago
This song is amazing. I don't think it's necessarily about a suicide. I think it's about the helplessness that can be felt when it comes to dealing with your family. You get into arguements and you hate the fact that they don't acknowledge or respect you. You get to a point where you start to think "Hey, I'm an adult too, and I shouldn't have to take this crap". You feel helpless because, frustrating as it can be and as hard as it can be to deal with, you can't just hate them and have that be the end of it. All you can do is forgive, or forget.
